Wait what?!?!O_o

Like isn't Double Helix already making KI which would be in direct competition with SF and stuff but now Capcoms giving them a license to develop?!? Like.. I don't even know...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Double Helix you bleeping kidding me this is Racoon City,DMC,Bionic Commando all over again. Why do Capcom keep giving fan favourite franchises to C tier developers. Whats next Onimusha being developed by Nihilistic
Fireseed  +   810d ago
Well I'm just surprised that they have the manpower to take on 2 titles at once, but in all fairness what they've shown with Killer Instinct has been phenomenal... so who knows.
Skate-AK  +   810d ago
Nooo don't jinx it. Nihilistic make mobile games now. I would freak if there was a new Onimusha on mobile before console.

Another nostalgic game being handed over to Double Helix. DH needs to get their dirty paws off my childhood. What's next? Chrono Trigger being developed by DH?

LOL Double Helix, I actually thought this was a joke article when I clicked into it.
JokesOnYou  +   810d ago
Well who says they are going to be working on both at the same time, KI is likely almost done since its a launch title due out in November. Strider is likely sometime later in 2014 right? Simultaneous maybe but plenty of time to work on Strider alone too. Also movie tie in games are always a disasters so the only real game they made for consoles early on in 2008 was Silent Hill Homecoming which I'm told was decent. Maybe they are learning with KI that instead of taking a guaranteed check for movie games they are better off putting their heart and soul into remaking established franchises. I pray with the rest of you that is the case. Strider is an old favorite.

Its on their website now coming to all the consoles.

Everyone talking sh*t about double helix needs to take a good look at Killer Instinct vids. Didn't know such a bad developer (as you guys like to put it) can make a game look so amazing.

Have you not played the original N64 Killer Instinct games? It's all about combo breakers and ultra combos. And why am I not surprised that a fanboy like you thinks Killer Instinct looks bad.

Killer instinct looks bad with no neutral game is just combo breakers and counters.

@George - Why would anyone be surprised that a fanboy like you thinks Kiler Instinct looks good? It looks good graphically, but I can't really say anything about gameplay until I play it.
Mikefizzled  +   810d ago
Heads up in case people have forgotten Nihilistic is now called nStigate Games.
Same rules apply. Don't buy their trash.
dcj0524  +   810d ago
I saw the gameplay trailer. Looks amazing. I want this on my vita.
SymphonicRain  +   810d ago
This is cool. I'm actually kinda excited for it. But Double Helix though? I'll be optimistic
Fireseed  +   810d ago
I'm gonna laugh when both KI and Strider come out... and they're absolutely amazing.
SymphonicRain  +   810d ago
For a minute I thought I wasn't gonna be able to play it, because I assumed it would be exclusive to the One. But it's coming to PS4 so that's cool. Always liked Strider.

It looks fine, I don't know why the negativity...


Gameplay fits in, too.

Wait....really?! to them of all developers?!
Inception  +   810d ago
Why Capcom not learnt from Konami when dealing with classic masterpiece? Just look at Contra: Hard Corps Uprising made by ArcSystemWorks. It looks and play great without alienating the old fanbase. If one dev who can do justice to Strider, i think ArcSystemWorks is the right choice, not Double Helix >.<
Skate-AK  +   810d ago
I will give Double Helix a chance. It will be hard for them though. They are now developing two game that have so much nostalgia behind them, it will be easy for them to piss off the die-hard fans. Double Helix, please don't pull a Ninja Theory. Pretty please?
FullMetalTech  +   810d ago
Good to hear that a Stryder game is being brought back but poor choice of a developer for it.
wishingW3L  +   810d ago
why is a mediocre developer making a Strider game? Does Capcom want to kill every single of their franchises like they did with DMC and Resident Evil? ;___;

Double Helix should just stick to making fighthing game only. Just stay away from strider !!! You know what happened to the horrible game you make which is Silent Hill Homecoming

Uh...what is wrong with Double Helix?

@ Lionalliance

Oh damn! All turds in my book. Hopefully they won't screw up this or KI.

They did Silent Hill Homecoming
the Green Lantern games
and the Battleship game...which were mediocre at best.
Inception  +   810d ago
And that crappy-shitty Front Mission: Devolved. Man, Double Helix ruin one of my most fav franchise. Hope they not ruin Strider too :(
aiBreeze  +   810d ago
Have you seen their list of games they've made? Go check them out and look at the average scores for them.
wishingW3L  +   810d ago
and is not just their scores, they are all mediocre games. Period. Not even a single decent one....
Bathyj  +   810d ago
Wow, Strider. Really?
I'd been talking about this before. I hope they do a good job. Now if someone would only redo, Rygar, Bombjack and Wonderboy.
Evildoomnerd  +   810d ago
There was a Rygar game released on the PS2 a while back


it should be on PSN by now.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   810d ago
what you know about that old school rygar?
Bathyj  +   810d ago
Yeah, I remember it. But not really the same thing is it?

I hope they dont do they to Strider.

In fact I think if theyre going to redo these old games that people love, they should be PSN/XBLA games with the same 2D gameplay, just new graphics. Why even bother using an old name if youre just going to crap all over the memories of the franchise.
CarlosX360  +   810d ago
Dunno 'bout you but I thought Rygar for PS2 was good. Surprisingly good.
supersonicjerry  +   810d ago
I think platinum games or ninja theory would have been a better choice but who knows this could be DH time to shine.
majiebeast  +   810d ago
Oh if only Grin still made games Bionic Commando Rearmed1/2 was good sadly the 3D version was shit.
CarlosX360  +   810d ago
Wat? It was a good game. I don't know whatchoo talking about.
Game4life  +   810d ago
wheres my megaman game capcom? You promised me megaman news. Dont make me burn your company to the ground.

i'll find where you live mr. capcom. You better tell mrs. capcom to run and hide with the kids

The chance of a Megaman game got very small when Inafune decided he had enough of Capcom.

Godmars290  +   810d ago
"why must you try to crush my spirit?"

I've seen the version of MML3 they're "allowing" to be released.

All blame to Capcom.
Godmars290  +   810d ago

And it should be pixels. Damnit.
4logpc  +   810d ago
People need to stop hating on Double Helix.

Killer Instinct and Strider look great.
BlaqMagiq24  +   810d ago
I give credit to Double Helix for knowing what they're doing on KI but Strider? REALLY CAPCOM!? Are you REALLY THAT LAZY TO NOT MAKE IT YOURSELVES!? Double Helix has not redeemed themselves just yet, but you give them a big title like this anyway? F U CAPCOM!!!
desertpunk86  +   810d ago
tell me a game by rocksteady studios before batman o yea it was a average fps that nobody bought urban chaos even the name of the game is freaking stupid.

a dev team has to start somewhere,people hating on double helix but devs like 343 and rocksteady prove that if a developer has the time and budget they can develop great games but only time will tell if the dev team will turn into a rocksteady or a people can fly.
Stryfeno2  +   810d ago
Most people haven't even played Strider on here...I remember the game in its natural glory when it first hit the arcades. From the trailer it looks promising. Give Double Helix a chance.
wishingW3L  +   810d ago
I have Strider 2 on PS1 and it comes with the original game too, so I have both. ;)
Stryfeno2  +   810d ago
That is not the same experience...That is like me saying I have SF3 third strike on PSN. By the time it hit PS1 it was old.
Inception  +   810d ago
I played Strider on Arcade, Genesis, and i bought Strider 2 for PS1. All looks challenging and fast. Not like this Strider that looks slow.

But i'll wait and see. Double Helix is a mediocre dev at best. So if this game turns out bad than i'm buying it because i'm a big fans of Strider.

I'm tired of all the premature hate and fanboyism gamers have nowadays. Yes, Double Helix might not have made a breakthrough game yet, but give the guys a chance. It's easy to bash a developer without any knowledge of the final product. I just saw the actual gameplay trailer


And I think it looks AWESOME. I played the original Strider at the arcades back in the day and I can honestly say I have faith in this game. Grow up people, and get the full story before releasing all that blind hate.
wishingW3L  +   810d ago
the art-style is ugly as hell. It's super generic, boring and textures look like shining plastic. Gameplay though, it looks exactly as the PS1 game. They didn't even take a second to make something new or worthy of a sequel. It's just an uglier more boring version of Strider 2.

Mikefizzled  +   810d ago
Looks like Capcom's western development test isn't over after all. I thought Spark Unlimited and Lost Planet 3 was the end but they may have been egged on by Raccoon City's disappointingly high sales.
Smashbro29  +   810d ago
At least they got the design (kinda) right. Hopefully they have a "classic" skin.
DVAcme  +   810d ago
All I'm gonna say is this:

Inception  +   810d ago
Cross your finger man. They already fucked up Front Mission and Silent Hill.
